Overview

Aimery de Gaillard es un hombre con el corazón partido en dos: por un lado, mantiene el juramento hecho al duque de Normandía, ahora monarca de Inglaterra, pero por otro defiende a los campesinos ingleses de las injusticias de sus nuevos señores. Vive en un continuo peligro, pero sus verdaderos problemas empiezan el día en que conoce a una mujer hermosa e indómita como no ha visto otra. Su pasión se torna ira cuando descubre que ella es, a los ojos del pueblo oprimido, una normanda tan despiadada y cruel como los demás invasores. Aimery entabla una lucha entre su irrefrenable deseo y su causa por la libertad, mientras el amor y el odio se confunden en una obsesión más peligrosa que el filo de una espada . . . Por otra parte, Madeleine ha conseguido evitar un triste destino como monja en una abadía, pero a cambio de aceptar que el duque de Normandía y su esposa le escojan marido. En las posesiones que le han sido otorgadas en Inglaterra espera la decisión, mientras soporta a duras penas la tutela de sus crueles tíos. Poco sospecha que en aquella tierra lejana, herida por la guerra y llena de peligros, encontrará a un hombre excepcional, un misterioso vagabundo de ojos verdes que despierta en ella un deseo desconocido. Allí descubrirá en ella una nueva fuerza que le permitirá enfrentarse a la injusticia y luchar por un amor que no puede dejar escapar.

One of the premiere writers of historical romances, Jo Beverley is the recipient of numerous awards including several RITAs from The Romance Writers of America and awards from Romantic Times, including two Career Achievement awards. She is a member of the RWA Honor Roll, and the RWA Hall of Fame.

Biography

Jo Beverley is one the few authors writing English-set historical romance who is English. She was born and raised in England, and has a degree in English history from Keele University in Staffordshire. She and her husband emigrated to Canada in 1975 where they raised their two children. In 2009, the couple returned to England.

Though Jo started to write as a young child, it was only in the '80s that she began to think that it was something ordinary people could do, and after a talk at a local library, she settled to seriously writing her first historical romance.

Now, she is the author of over thirty romance novels and many novellas, which have garnered several RITAs from the Romance Writers of America, as well as several awards from Romantic Times, including two Career Achievement awards. She is a member of the RWA Honor Roll, and the RWA Hall of Fame.

Good To Know

Some fascinating outtakes from our interview with Jo Beverley:

"I'm English, born, raised, and educated, which has to contribute to the way I write my books."

"My profession -- once upon a time in another world -- was careers guidance, which involved visiting many different workplaces and learning about the jobs done there. This is a great education in the variety and complexity of life."

"I taught women-centered childbirth classes for 5 years, and that comes out in any childbirth scenes in my books.

"I'm a craft-dabbler, and I've tried most of them, including Tenerife lace, tatting, leatherwork, and stained glass, but I've never stuck with any. However, I once was a very good painter and I've recently decluttered all my craft materials to concentrate on drawing and painting as my artistic therapy for a demented author."

"I grew up in Morecambe, Lancashire, which is a 19th-century seaside town, but that's very close to Heysham, an ancient coastal village. They say the pre-Conquest church there is the oldest one in England still in use and there are stone-age tombs as well. We used to play on an Anglo-Saxon hogs-back stone near the church. I'm sure this easy contact with such ancient things tuned my mind to the past. I set my second book, The Stanforth Secrets, in Heysham, and it will be reissued in 2010." "My indulgences are really good cheese, bread, wine, coffee, and dark, dark chocolate (90% Lindt."
